When I try to shorten the field in a label report so that one long name doesn't feed onto the next label,  it shows as shortened, but still prints out overlapped.  Anyone know how to affix the Field Lenght in a Label report to avoid this problem?

RE: Field Length in RptSmith Label Rpt

I figured it out!! just in case anyone was wondering, create a dirived field :

@LEFT( NAME, 16)

where 16 is the number of characters to appear.  I can't BELIEVE the people on the Reportsmith Help line couldnt figure this out.
